Welcome to Old Barn Farm
Not just your everyday Produce Farm
We're in the dead of winter - what's going on now?
The garlic that was planted late November is growing. Most raised beds have been cleared and being prepped for spring. The spring planting schedule was created and seeds were ordered and now received. The seeding scheduled for early February is being delayed to mid February. The fall appearance of the wooly worm was right, it's a long, cold winter! We are currently in the process of redesigning the raised bed area paying attention to aesthetics since most sales are now on the farm instead of the market. We're officially closed for the winter but still take orders for eggs.
We continue to take orders for eggs, seasonal veggies and herbs - just send us a message.

Here For You
Besides produce, herbs, flowers and eggs we offer recipes, tips and meal suggestions and many are posted on Instagram. We plan to continue hosting some farm events. This past years Farm Tour, Seeding Event, and Photos at the Barn were successful. Tentative events for upcoming season may include an art event "Paint the Old Barn", a "Wine Tasting at the Old Barn" event and a "Farm Fit" event incorporating exercise into farming and some type of Farm Tour. More to come on that.
Available right now updated 2/5/2021: Gem Head Lettuce, Thyme, Rosemary & Lavender bunches. Free Range Eggs. Order some from here for pick up on Thursdays or Saturdays.
Free Range Eggs
We love our chickens! We have many beautiful and friendly breeds. We currently have 3 age groups, Our Golden Girls are now 8+ years old and still lay an occasional egg. Our 1, 2 & 3 year old's are our heaviest producers. When our hens no longer lay eggs they get to live out their life as our pets. Our eggs are pasture raised and ungraded.
Pick up on our farm on Saturdays or by special order. Our season at the Cotswold Farmers Market is delayed due to Covid. Contact us for seasonal produce and eggs anytime and we will prepare your order for pick and using social distancing.
Sat: 9am - 12pm at the Market or
at the Farm by Appointment

About Old Barn Farm
Old Barn Farm is a small produce farm located in Wesley Chapel close in to Charlotte. Originally from Long Island, but spending the past 30+ years in the Charlotte area, we’re a husband & wife team that moved out to the country to experience small farm life. We practice responsible and sustainable growing methods and treat our animals kindly. While always trying to maintain a healthy balance in our lives, we have found that farming is good for us both physically and mentally. The physical demands of farming provide a constant source of exercise and the mundane tasks like weeding or seeding provide mental calming. The produce we grow provides excellent nourishment to our bodies. As we age we continue to be aware of the need to maintain a good level of physical activity and you can be assured farming provides that! So we’re “Staying Farm Fit” and get to bring you healthy produce in the process.
Yoga on the Farm Event
Our 1st Farm Event will be held early in 2020. It will be Yoga on the Farm. Please contact us to sign up or if you have any questions, comments or special requests? We’d love to hear from you, so don’t hesitate to reach out today.
About the Old Barn
We loved this property when we moved here in 2012. The old barn has been a back drop for many photograph sessions, in fact, the day we moved in, there were people at the barn taking pictures. Fall is particularly pretty, especially when you throw a haystack and pumpkin out front. We did expand the barn slightly to accommodate our horses but otherwise we've kept it true to original. This barn is alive, especially at dawn and dusk, feeding time.
